Presently on my 255WT a black bar alert pops up near the speed camera location and red light camera location along with the boing boing with a bunch of small text. I would like a black/grey video camera type icon with just the speed in the center in larger letters for the speed cameras and a red video type camera for the red light cameras? Where can I find these and how do I make it work in simple terms please. And thanks for everyones help here for a newbie on this forum!
Changing icons/sounds is relatively simple. Download the icon and sound you desire and place them into the same file as the speed camera and red light camera. I have a separate file for each poi. Once you download the icon and sound you desire into the folder with the poi file change the name of the icon and sound files so it/they match the name of the red light and speed camera file.
Icons and sounds can be found below.
Since your 255 does not have a MP3 player, you will need to use .WAV files and the SOX.EXE utility with POI Loader.
OK, I did all of that.
I have Redlight-Cameras.csv, Redlight-Cameras.mp3, Redlight-Cameras.bmp --- Speed-Cameras.csv, Speed-Cameras.mp3, Speed-Cameras.bmp all in the same poi folder, have installed them via POI Loader, but the same black bar with the text and the boing boing are still there and the new ones don't show up? Any suggestions?
OOPS, did not know about that
OK, I now have the voice working just fine, but the black bar with the text is still here? Shouldn't the new icons I installed from here work in place of the bar? I have them named Speed-Cameras.bmp and Redlight-Cameras.bmp
The icons will show on the map at certain zoom levels, but they do not replace the text box on the alert itself.
You can't get rid of the bar or replace with anything else. To view the icon you add you have to be zoomed in to 200 ft level. This isn't really helpful for alert notification in my opinion. I think you are stuck with grey bar.
Thanks Alan & Hawk, now I know, at least I have the voice alert
